Product Description

In The Cave, a board game from K2 author Adam Kaluza, players take on the role of a speleologist team tasked with exploring a newly discovered cave. Players start from a base and explore a cave, tunnel after tunnel, effectively building the board (the cave). They have to overcome steep descents, underground lakes, and tight squeezes. They will be given a chance to admire the wonders of the underground, like halls full of stalactites. To make it all possible they must take the right supplies with them, like ropes, oxygen and batteries.

Each turn players have five action points to use for moving, discovering new cave tiles, exploring them, and packing their backpacks when they go back to the starting base. They need ropes for descents, oxygen to explore underwater parts, and a camera to photograph underground wonders. Planning what to take with them is one of the most important things in the game. Each turn that their pawn is not in the starting base, players must use (i.e., throw out) one basic supply from their backpack; these costs, along with the expenditure of other supplies during exploration, forces them to return to the starting base a few times during the game. To keep them from having to carry everything, though, players can raise a camp somewhere in the tunnels where they can store some of the equipment.

The cave differs every game, so players have to be prepared for everything or they will lose time. Players earn points for exploring different tiles: underwater, wondrous, descents, and so on -- but to win they'll need to acquire bonus prizes for exploring the most tiles of each type. This make decision-making during trips very difficult.

When the cave is fully explored, the player who made the biggest effort in the most spectacular way wins the game.

I had never played K2, but nothing but good reviews and high expectations for The Cave. When we received The Cave, and 10 sandwich baggies later, the game was ready to go. We played for about 2 hours on our first 4 man cave, LOTS of fun for 4 adults. I would suggest picking up a storage container for the different tokens. I cannot wait to share this game with other friends and family members.

I love the theme for this game, but it is a little fiddly. By that i mean everytime you lay down a tile, you have to remember to put something on that tile. Many times when I flip a tile over, I then want to think about my move. I forget to put on a depth marker, or a camera marker, or other things. Which makes for going back and saying i never put a marker on that spot. Which slows the game down trying to remember.
I found the rules somewhat vague, so you have to figure out some scenarios that happen in the game.
I love the theme and the concept. I do like it, and will play it on occasion.

I am very pleased with this game, it took some time to get to me from Europe but was well worth the wait. My wife and I play this game regularly and have even invited other couples over to play with us. This is in my top 5 favorite games now. Takes about an hour to play with two people a bit longer with 4. This game blows away more traditional American board games such as monopoly and risk. Try it, you wont be disappointed.
